With my recent venture out to DragonCon here in Atlanta with an estimated 45,000 of my closest friends, I had to wonder why Turbine and DDO weren't there.
I know they just finished PAX and they do E3, but what an opportunity missed. 45,000 people into fantasy, steampunk (artificer is the ultimate MMO steampunk persona), and gaming. Sounds like the right place for DDO and LOTRO.
Most of the other gaming concerns were missing as well. I don't begin to know the economics of Turbine's advertising choices, but after spending time there Labor Day weekend, I can just say that Turbine, you sure missed the boat on this one!
